Meguri: Teeming Sea, Tranquil Land
Directed, choreographed, and designed by Ushio Amagatsu

October 12–13, 2019



A stone wall carved with fossils of sea lilies overlooks a sand-dusted stage, where eight dancers from this internationally renowned butoh company enter into a sublime dialogue with gravity. Meguri is a meditative visual poem by Ushio Amagatsu, Sankai Juku's artistic director, that reflects on the passage of time through imagery and movement inspired by the ebb and flow of water, and the cycle of the earth's seasons.
